Commonwealth Games Gold Medalist
What made me decide to retire was-- the first reason was that I felt like I achieved everything I could, everything that my body was physically capable of achieving in the world tour. The second reason is I've been in the world tour for 12 years. And during that time, I discovered there's other aspects to cycling, and I wanted to use my last couple of-- last few years of being a high-performing athlete to go and explore those avenues, things like gravel, time trail outside of time trailing in the world tour, and like the crit racing in America, just really broadened my horizon. So it became a very easy decision.
